Story By Newswatch 12 Sports


- Anglers are making final preps for Saturday's inland fishing opener. It officially begins at midnight.

In the meantime, some have continued to keep busy on area lakes.

Check out Wabeno's Jeff Larocque with a nice catch on a Laona area lake. This 21 inch small mouth bass had a 17-inch gerth. He was using a jib and a wiggler on 3-pound test line. After the picture the fish was released.


Peter Wagner of Rhinelander caught his first bass through the ice just a few weeks ago. He was fishing for crappies in the Three Lakes area.


He was using Crappie minnows. It measured 18 inches. This one was also released after a quick photo-opt.

And recently, 5-year old Casey Strasburg of Minocqua caught his first walleye. He was fishing with his dad Little Bay de Noc near Gladstone, MI. The walleye measured 30 1/2 inches and weighed 9 1/2 pounds. He was using shiners for bait. This one was definately a keeper.
